Let’s help independent pubs stay on track

While big chains may be well equipped to weather the current economic situation, it’s much harder for small and local pubs to keep their business afloat! It is imperative that we keep supporting the independent businesses that make London tick!

About the team

Josh Barbour picture, cofounder of CityStack

Josh, the pubs' lover

Josh loves a good pub. Having lived north, east, and south of the river, Josh has been exploring the best independent pubs London has to offer for the past 6 years.

 

Being a bartender for a few years, Josh also has an appreciation for the hard graft that goes into serving up each and every pint.
 

Sharing the great pubs he has discovered with a wider audience, supporting bartenders and the pubs themselves, all whilst lightening the load the wallet, is why Josh is excited to launch CityStack!

Alison, for the marketing expertise

Alison's family has worked in hospitality for a while and she knows how challenging it is to run a local restaurant, bar or pub.  It requires a lot of energy to deliver the best service possible, and managers don’t have time to spend on marketing. Nor the expertise.

Having worked in the e-commerce sector for the past few years, Alison has helped small & independent retailers who had the same issue, competing against big groups with more resources, by providing modern marketing tools to develop their activity.

Alison wants to give the same opportunity to local pubs and offer her marketing expertise so they can highlight why people should visit them.

Together, we can bring pubs back to life.

“Having spent quite a lot of time at pubs with friends in London, I came up with that idea: it would be great to have a selection of good pubs with something more to offer to people like me, who love good beers, good food in a nice atmosphere. Here we go!”
